    Despite having no time for the royal family and like a lot of the population condemned Charlie as weird for talking to his plants I recently have been looking in to all this climate warming stuff and discovered that commercial greenhouse growers buy in canisters of CO2 to increase the levels of carbon dioxide in their greenhouses as it increases growth by up to 30%. (apparently it is normal for commercial growers to do this)

    Now normal `outside` CO2 is much less than the the pumped up levels in greenhouses so Charlie was in fact correct when he went around talking to his plants and claiming they grew much better as when he talked to them his breath would shower the plants in CO2 from his breath to a much higher level which would stimulate their growth, so he was in fact correct!

      I've got a meeting on Monday morning so I think I shall hold it in the greenhouse. There's going to be a lot of CO2 emitted! :blue thumb:

        If the meetings I often attend are anything to go by, I suspect it won't be the only thing being emitted.......

              @ARMANDII you are not thinking clesrly here. If you are on an elevator and accidently release your own emission, you can roll your eyes and give @Fat Controller a dirty look.... :whistle:

                Unfortunately, if you are alone in a Lift with FC under those circumstances you cannot think clearly as you're unconscious due to the absence of oxygen.
